President Rodrigo Duterte ignored his scheduled one-on-one interview with Kris Aquino.
It was during the National Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Summit organized by GoNegosyo in Davao City last Frida, November 11,2016.
Duterte arrived from a two-day visit in Malaysia at 4 a.m. on Friday.
Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez made the announcement more than an hour after the President was expected to arrive. The event was advertised at 4:30 p.m., but the program did not start until past 5 p.m.
Aquino went ahead and spoke at the program about Duterte missing the event.
Kris said that just like anybody, she was also excited with her scheduled interview with the president.
In fact she went into a diet and thought that would be an opportunity.
Aquino said she got advice from her brother, former president Benigno Aquino III, about pushing through with attending the show despite Duterte’s no-show.
Despite this, she expressed hope of interviewing Duterte in the future.
Ayon sa kampo ni Duterte, sinikap ng Presidente na makadalo subalit masama raw ang pakiramdam nito at nagkaroon ng migraine.
Kris had a joke of the President’s not coming to the said event, ‘Maybe I have that effect on some men. Mina-migraine talaga sila sa akin.’
Sa simula pa lang ng programa ay hindi naiwasan ng Queen of All Media na magpahayag ng kanyang pagkadismaya sa hindi pagkakatuloy ng kanyang one-on-one interview kay Pangulong Duterte.
Her message to the president: ‘Pero President Duterte, please give me a chance. I hope one day mamahalin mo rin ako.’
